Anatomy of Violence, directed by internationally acclaimed filmmaker Deepa Mehta, mixes fiction and fact in an improvised exploration of the events leading and following the gang rape of a young woman by six men in a bus in Delhi in 2012. This film stares directly at the question: “What makes monsters?” It probes where these young men came from and what might have motivated them. Created with the intention to be a catalyst in expanding the dialogue surrounding the issue of violence against women, the film demonstrates the dissemination of violence and that violence is endemic and indiscriminate. Join us for a screening and discussion with producer David Hamilton as we explore the topic – what makes a monster?
